Joel Ball, Louth Academy Year 7 student, is supporting England all the way for Sunday’s final.
Louth Academy students have been swept up in England euphoria as the football team heads to the finals of a major tournament on Sunday for the first time in 55 years.
Year 7 Art students have been making banners of support to wave at home at the weekend as they watch the match with their families on Sunday evening.
Joel Ball (12) said that, like most of the country, he stayed up late on Wednesday to watch England’s defeat of Denmark 2-1 at Euro 2020, and will be back beside his brother and his dad to watch the final against Italy.
"It was a great night and we cannot wait for the final. It is 50/50 I think as Italy have a good team, but so do we.”
William Andrews (12) said: “My dad has been watching England since the 1980s and this is the first time they have got to a major final in that time. We cannot wait for the final. It is coming home, I hope.”
The artwork is making for a vibrant display in the Academy prior to the game.
Louth Academy Year 7 students, Scarlett-Michelle Bray, William Andrews, Charlie Barnes (all 12) and Isabella Cobley (11), will be cheering on England in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.
